School Classroom Tech Coaches

Classroom Tech Coaches provide support for curriculum technology integration, professional development, online testing, and effective use of district-wide technology.   Building on the SAMR Model, a model designed to help educators infuse technology into teaching and learning, the CTC's desire to enable teachers to design, develop, and infuse digital learning experiences that utilize technology.   Our mission is to help students in our district become college prepared and career ready by providing an engaging learning environment, raising student achievement, and supporting equitable access to learning opportunities for all students.

School Computer Techs

Computer Techs have been placed across the district to manage school networks and provide technical assistance for each school's equipment.  Management Information Systems handles the implementation of PowerTeacher, MSIS, Munis, and other district-wide systems that handle sensitive data.  Computer Techs handle issues involving Wi-Fi, district-owned computer hardware, network log-on issues, and issues within the Windows OS and district-wide system software (such as those mentioned above).  Support for district-owned Apple/Mac devices is also available.

Please be sure that you notify your tech about any problems you may experience with the computers in your classroom and place a tech ticket when needed.
